... Have any of you just pieced together your own set of pedals in front of a standard DI box to accomplish the same thing as an Aguilar Tone Hammer, Eden WTDI, or other preamp DI pedal? I'm thinking of setting up a pedalboard with a low gain OD pedal, EQ pedal, and maybe a compressor into a DI box. Run the DI to FOH, and through to a PA power amp and bass cab for my own stage sound. Would this be accomplishing the same thing as a preamp/DI pedal, or am I missing something? I'd love to see/read about other folks rigs that do this too!
